What would draw a dealership or garage to purchase Service Merchandisers?

To give your Service Department a clean and organized appearance.  To offer the mechanics more efficiency and a dedicated work area, based on the task. 

Heavy duty and modular to fit any desired configuration, these Work Stations added efficiency to any busy Service Area.  All manufacturers delivered their Merchandisers enameled in White only.

You would have a choice of Ad Glass for a given specialty or Marquee signage that could be customized by department or dealer.
